*Jay-Z has been hit with a strange copyright lawsuit over his memoir “Decoded.”
According to the June 13th lawsuit filed in United States District Court, Patrick White is claiming that his personal computer was “compromised, resulting in my personal work to be used in Jay Z’s book “Decoded” which was released in 2010.”
He alleges, “The book contains various expressions/colors/phrases, which correlates to my work. After contacting or attempting to contact the co-author (Jay Z), I got no reply.”
White is seeking damages for copyright infringement and invasion of property, reports AllHipHop.com.
Co-author Dream Hampton and publishing firm Random House were also named in the suit.
